A disabled performance poet and theatre maker has been chosen to benefit from ARC’s disabled artist residency.
The disabled residency opportunity has been made possible by Cultural Shift, a funded programme of arts activity based at ARC for disabled people.
The residency offers a unique and valuable opportunity for disabled theatre makers to have a dedicated and stimulating space to work, write and rehearse a brand new piece of theatre.
Rowan James will be spending time at the Stockton venue from Monday 15 August to develop some ideas for a brand new play, which will incorporate a mix of poetry and physical performance. It will also explore how poetry, sign language and dance can all come together to form something incredible.
